A news report today indicates the IRS also targeted high profile Christians and Christian groups with online and or TV presence for harassment when filing tax returns. As my regular readers know, not only have I been criticizing the government online (an issue the FBI emailed the Judiciary Report over a few years ago) I am also a Christian with an online presence, reaching millions.
Congressman lauded for tearing the IRS a new one in Congress last week:
So based on the above mentioned criteria, I fit every check box for the harassment that ensued at the hands of the IRS, leading me to break the story online a few years ago. I wasn't trying to start trouble, but at the end of the day, we're all human and entitled to basic rights. No one deserves to be harassed, defrauded or discriminated against. This was a serious misuse of the IRS.
President Obama has publicly denied any knowledge of the harassment campaign, but today it was revealed member of his cabinet at the White House knew and sanctioned it. What I find ironic is the FBI is investigating the IRS in this matter, when they were involved in the misconduct against select people they sent the IRS after, as a form of harassment.
